Matty's Top 10

Alright, so I got some free time today and figured I'd put together a top 10.  I was going to leave off Always Ballin, but I'll include them in here.  I'll try to do 1 or maybe 2 more of these throughout the season.  They take more time then you think wink 

Just a heads up, my list is based STRONGLY on SOS and not record.


1) Bloody Mary  -  Key Players: Assault rifle AK-47 (36.8 ppg) Tomato Juice (35.6 ppg)

They are they clear cut #1 team right now.  There only loss was by 1 point early in the season when weird things tend to happen.  Tarator did a great job training these guys last season and they have a large TP lead on most teams and are rolling through Bird right now.  They've got a solid win over my #2 team which proves they deserve this spot.  They've got the two big scorers mentioned above, but don't sleep on their quickness and strong defense to cause some serious turnovers.


2) Always Ballin  -  Key Players: C.E. R.N. (28.2 ppg 4.7 apg) Andrew Jackson (9.1 bpg 1.3 spg)

Also coming in with a 16-1 record, outside of their one loss to the #1 team they have not had another game within 10 points.  Also coming off a Rat season, they are looking to keep pace with Bloody Mary and solidify their #1 seed going into the playoffs.  Their strong defense and big blockers in the middle along with high % scoring from the outside (#1 and #2 % in Pro A) should continue their strong play down the stretch.  Looking forward to the rematch between them and Bloody Mary.


3) Honolulu LocoMoco  -  Key Players: Chase Jordan (4.8 spg) Baddis Maximus (27.0 rpg)

Coming in at 12-5, they are not third in the standings but have played a very tough schedule.  3 of their 5 losses have come from the top 2 teams and after a 2-4 start have gone 10-1 since with solid wins over KK, WEB and 2 wins over Chicken Mafia.  They are 1 of 2 teams in Pro A that have all 4 scorers over 21 ppg and will use their balanced play to help earn them a #1 seed.


4) Chicken Mafia  -  Key Players: Andrea Bargnani (6.4 bpg)

Coming in at only 11-6 and 6th in Rating, they have played a very tough schedule so far.  5 of their 6 losses come from the top 3 teams here with the only other loss on day 2 to a well accomplished Full Eclipse team.  Using their speed just like Bloody Mary they will attempt to continue their strong play like their wins over KK, NoD, and WEB.


5) Kilt Krusaders  -  Key Players: Dos Equis (27.1 rpg 1.3 bpg) Brock Norton (26.1 ppg 1.4 spg)

With a few questionable performances against NDSU early and a close win to EDX it was tough to spot them, but they have played well overall and the win against Bloody Mary has to stand for something.  This team always seems to get stronger as the season goes on and I'd look for that to continue this year.  They are in the hunt for a #1 seed and will use their balanced scoring attack and strong rebounding to get that.


6) Nation of Domination  -  Key Players: The Professor (47.1 ppg) Friglade Leancam (11.2 apg)

This team is very solid and I'd watch out for them down the stretch.  They could have easily been higher on this list and I see them moving up as the season goes on.  4 of their 6 losses come from the top 4 teams and one odd one from NDSU after destroying them 2 nights in a row.  Don't sleep on this team and their huge sharpshooter who is approaching 50 ppg!


7) NDSU Bison  -  Key Players: David Dockter (27.2 rpg)

Also coming in at 11-6 like many other teams, they have played a tough schedule.  I originally had them at 8 and Diliman at 7, but after looking at their 2 games, it seems NDSU has a slight edge on them right now.  Other than the loss to WEB, all their losses have come to the top 6 teams.  If they want to move up they need to prove they can consistently beat some of the top teams.  They are also the only other team along with Honolulu to have all 4 scorers over 21 ppg.


8) Diliman United  -  Key Players: Bruce Quebral (4.4 spg) Emman Nazareno (3.8 spg)

Currently 3rd in the Standings, they have played a weak schedule thus far.  Their 2 losses coming to NDSU and 1 to NoD and notable victories over WEB and EDX.  They will ride their strong defenders to attempt to keep their record strong as the season goes on.  Looking forward to see how they fair against the rest of the teams on this list.


9) Wizard Extreme Ballers  -  Key Players: Sum Ting Wong (35.2 ppg) Josh Smith (7.0 bpg)

This group of vets have been around for a while and know what they are doing.  They have use their challenges to assemble a very tough schedule so far which hasn't exactly played out the way they would have liked.  Look for them to turn a couple of them close losses into wins in the second half of the season.  There 2 scorers will need to step up their game to get them some much needed wins down the stretch.


10) Erectile Disfunction Xperiment  -  Key Players: Mr. Clutch (44.6 ppg) Master Yoda (4.6 spg)

This was a tough decision and could have gone in multiple directions but I went with this Pro B team.  They have had many close losses, including two 1 point losses to KK.  Another close 4 point loss to Chicken Mafia and an early win over Honolulu earned them the last spot on this list.  Let's see if they can work their way back to Pro A.

Re: Matty's Top 10

I guess having one guy own every player on the team is a solid way to win.  You know training will be done by everyone because you are everyone.  It kinda takes away from the "team" aspect of the game though.  Just sayin'.

Umm...no. Your team is 16-1. Who would you put above Bloody Mary and Always Ballin at the #1 and #2 spots?

Thanks for the kind words guys....I'll be doing another when there seems to be a difference in the rankings.

Re: Matty's Top 10

Whoa, #4? I think that's the highest Chicken Mafia has ever been ranked on any list.

Also, if anyone figures out how to beat Bloody Mary, please let me know.
